The REV will look back at some key pieces from the first-ever collection called Primitive and some important works from the Souvenirs of the last century and the Boolean series. Each series visualises the intellectual development and progress in handcraftsmanship and new technologies over the past thirteen years.
For the FWD part of the exhibition, Studio Nucleo has embarked on a new venture with a conscious point of view to investigate more eco-friendly materials and procedures to construct their artworks. The results of this research led to recycling waste from their previous productions, including sawdust, and collaborating with a Turin based start-up to create efficient and safe pieces of resin from recycled plastic. The very first items of this FWD series will be premiered at the exhibition in May during the London Gallery Weekend.
Studio Nucleo looks at themes of identity, history, and interlacing time frames. Working in three-dimensional, architectonic forms, their work is typified by the tactile quality of the material and its effects on the objects. The group has been part of major museum exhibitions, including the Centre Georges Pompidou Paris, Carnegie Museum of Art Pittsburgh, Chelsea Art Museum New York, and Design Museum Gent. Iconic works are part of museum collections, including the 'Souvenir of the Last Century Stool' at the Triennale and the 'Terra Chair' at the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam.
